HOW TO PICK UP YOUR PASS


20/21 passholders who haven’t received their pass before Opening Day can still ski or ride when the chairs start turning. Just stop by the Snow Summit or Bear Mountain ticket windows to pick up your pass.

If you have not received your 20/21 season pass, it's likely due to an unfinished passholder profile on IkonPass.com, missing photo, or incomplete Release of Liability form. Guest Services representatives will be available at the Snow Summit and Bear Mountain ticket windows on Nov. 18 starting at 8:30AM.
